We’ve got just a few more days to wait until Ghost release their five-song covers EP PHANTOMINE, but the band have just unveiled one of the record’s most highly-anticipated tracks: Phantom Of The Opera.

Not of the Andrew Lloyd Webber variety – Ghost’s new cover is of Iron Maiden’s 1980 effort, taken from their self-titled album. And it’s no secret that mainman Tobias Forge is massively influenced by Maiden, telling Planet Rock that his love for them transcends just the music – he loves their live production, and “also when it comes to work ethics and just the sheer volume of work you have to put into your job [and] in your craft has always been inspiring to me.”

Hear Tobias and co. pay tribute to Iron Maiden below:

PHANTOMIME is due out on May 19 via Loma Vista Recordings.
